Lush pastures of the Gippsland Plains support grass fed beef and a thriving dairy industry with award winning artisan cheeses. Venison, pork, lamb, goat and freerange eggs add to the variety. Vegetables grown on river flats complement fruit and nuts from mountain valleys.
Boutique wineries nestle in the foothills, also home to vibrant arts communities. Local food providers feature the wares of artisan makers of preserves, confectionary, olive oils and smallgoods. Restaurants work closely with local producers creating menus reflective of the seasons.
